    Default Dogs and avocados

    There seems to be varying opinions on the internet that avocados are poisonous to dogs.  I have an avocado tree in my garden and a young dog that has just started eating the windfalls on the ground.

    So far it doesn't seem to have affected him, but I'm concerned that in the long term, it might be causing damage.

    Any opinions?

    mine have been eating avocado fallen from the tree for years. they love 'em too: place avocado between the paws, carefully peel the skin and eat the "meat". they are perfectly healthy. albeit a bit fat.

    Read the book" Marley and Me". The dog eats them all the time. It does nothing good for his poops.

    OMG, 78 pesos for one avocado. Even if it's a green giant that's a New York City price.
